“People like to say money doesn’t matter, but that’s not true. When we are in control of our finances and have good financial health, every area of our lives benefits. From our health, to our careers, to our relationships, being financially well can improve all areas of our life. The first step toward financial wellness is knowledge, and I hope that my work provides people with the tools they need to make the right financial decisions for them.”
